Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album has a Bayesian average rating of 69.5/100, a mean average of 68.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 69.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 18.6.

Probably stronger than Shapes. The standouts are Tonight and Domino. I like the title track, The Brazilian is quirky and Throwing It All Away is a great pop song. Overall pretty decent.

Nice laid back album of pop as I would describe it. Most tracks enjoyable and an easy listen.

A much-maligned album by hardcore Genesis fans that gets much more hate than it deserves. Yes, it's got some really poppy moments, but they're pretty inoffensive and often quite catchy. Some are even rather excellent (Throwing It All Away). There's also a nice political rocker in Land of Confusion and surprising but much-welcomed prog-pop epic in Domino. Dig deeper than the pop here and you'll find some solid stuff. Aside from Genesis' debut, you could make the argument that this is Genesis' worst album up to this point in time, and you'd have an argument, but I wouldn't go as far as calling it a bad album when there's so much treasure hidden underneath the radio favorites. Not a bad album in the slightest, just uneven.

The title track, Tonight, Tonight, Tonight, Land of Confusion, Domino, and The Brazilian are pretty great. The rest of the tracks are not good.

Not only could genesis write the most beautiful classical/folk inspired rock albums, but they went on to produce some of the most creative and inventive pop music in the 80's with albums like this and abacab.

There are some beautiful songs in here, but overall it is pretty inconsistent. 6/10.
